Not so newbie here
« on: August 28, 2013, 08:21:15 PM »
Hi all

For those that don't know me my name is Keith, I've been on this site for a loooooong time now but haven't been active for a while due to work/home stuff going on. But back with a vengeance now and looking forward to being an active member again, for all newbies here welcome and if I can help at all I will (although there are far better and more knowledgeable togs on here than me lol) this is a great site full of helpful, inspirational and downright helpful people and we all try to get along apart from of course when it comes to the Canon vs Nikon wars which us Sony and Pentax users stay out of 'cos we have the superior cameras anyway  :dance: :legit:

So not a newbie but a member that's been too quiet on here so hello to old and new friends alike  ;)

Hi Keith, Yes - Pentax users know their kit is better than either of those two!

(Though to be fair I've also got a very pocketable Canon Powershot S95 which I love.)

Hi again Keith.

I'm saying nothing about the camera wars. I've never had one made by a decent manufacturer that I haven't been happy with. Although the winder on my Rolleicord doesn't work properly any more - cheap German rubbish ;)

Howard did you hear about the Leica owner oh boy something like 1600 actuations on his 6k camera that is about 16 months old it's stopped working and leica are basically shrugging their shoulders and saying there is nothing they can do, as someone in AP pointed out though it is covered by Sale of Goods act so if that was me I would be kicking up a storm...not so cheap German Rubbish

oh and what's a winder?  :P :legit:

It's what we oldies use to drag bits of light sensitive celluloid past a thing called a shutter that following a very smelly and complicated process can get an image onto a bit of paper. It's nostalgia, but apparently gaining in popularity again.  8) ;)
